If You Had Been Here

I believe that when one leaves one's homeland to settle elsewhere for whatever reason, it leaves one in a state of limbo. There are ambivalent feelings - of being uprooted, of still belonging in one’s homeland and of feeling strangely at home elsewhere, but in neither at the same time.

These photographs are a project about the country I left behind and the country I found. They are an expression of the constant feeling of longing and loss - but also of the excitement of experiencing the new.
